Members of the Songbird series from PanAmerican Seed share a compact habit and large, long-spurred, showy upward-facing flowers measuring 3” in length on average. ‘Blue Jay’ produces large, violet blue and white flowers. The shade of blue is a little more intense than ‘Bluebird’, another member of the series. Use in shady, woodland borders or as a cut flower.
Aquilegia is especially lovely when allowed to naturalize in shady, woodland borders. They also have excellent potential as cut flowers, lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.
